Abstract [en]

This report describes the prototype of a bridge monitoring system based on wireless sensor network technology. The network consists of a terminal or base station (data logging and configuration unit), representing the data sink in the network, and several tens of sensor nodes spread over a bridge and representing the data sources. Each sensor node is equipped with sensors, a microcontroller and a radio transceiver. All nodes together form a multi-hop communication network. That is, each sensor node figures as data source and relaying station, forwarding data received from adjacent nodes. The nodes cooperatively organize itself into a network. That is, the paths of data packets to the base station are set up dynamically. Therefore, if a single node or parts of the network fail, new paths to the base station are established. Furthermore, any number of nodes can be added at any time without implementing specific routing instructions. The routing mechanism of the data packets is optimised for maximizing the network’s lifetime, i.e. energy consumption is distributed evenly among the nodes.
